Maryland Wood Countertops explains that a live edge slab stands out from other countertops and instantly adds style to your home. The most common types of slab woods are Maple, Walnut, Cherry, Elm, and Red or White Oak.
According to construction guru Bob Villa, maple and bamboo are the most popular species because of their availability and sustainability. However, many hardwoods are also well-suited for kitchen countertops, depending on the look you want and the region in which you live in. An example of a regional wood used for countertops is mesquite in the Southwest United States. Mesquite is as well suited as black walnut or cherry. Woods that are very soft like pine are not usually used for countertops
Most wood countertops are traditional butcher blocks, but today they are chosen more for their appearance than their usefulness for chopping. These countertops are modern versions of the thick rounds of sycamore that butchers worked on until the 1880s. lengths of hard maple glued together took their place in the early 1900s because they are a stronger, more durable surface.
There are a few additional installation costs such labor, as well as metal fasteners, adhesives, polishes, nuts, screws and bolts. Although you can buy all kinds of special cleaners for stainless steel, they are not necessary. According to The Kitchn, you likely already have everything you need to naturally clean and maintain your stainless steel countertops. Mostly, a good wipe with a damp kitchen sponge or cleaning cloth is all you need to for daily cleaning.
